No Password Required: President at Constellation Cyber, Former FBI Translator, and Finder of Non-Magical Mushrooms

The No Password Required podcast is dedicated to introducing and celebrating the practitioners, leaders, researchers, and individuals who are shaping the cybersecurity industry. Join us for an in-depth conversation that explores our guests' personalities, expertise, and the path that led them into cybersecurity. The team also discusses current cyber threats and readiness tips for security professionals and business leaders alike.

Roman Sannikov is the president of Constellation Cyber LLC, a boutique consulting firm specializing in cyberthreat intelligence and analysis. In addition to building Constellation from the ground up, he also serves as a research and intelligence adviser for CYBERA and Venation, two digital security and resilience companies that offer innovative solutions to protect organizations and individuals from cyberthreats.
Roman joins Carlton Fields’ Jack Clabby and KnowBe4’s Kayley Melton to discuss his career journey, which started during his college years when he worked as a freelance Russian language translator for the FBI. Throughout his journey, Roman has encountered thrilling adventures, such as scaling a cargo ship via a frozen rope ladder from a speedboat to aid in a death investigation, and enduring tense moments while safeguarding a cooperating witness within the confines of a sealed, sweltering van.
Roman's passion for a collaborative and transparent approach to cybersecurity shines through as he emphasizes the need for innovation beyond just tools and money. Roman unravels the complexities of the cybersecurity landscape, highlighting the importance of collective action in safeguarding organizations and individuals from evolving threats.
To start the show, Jack and Kayley discuss John Oliver's "Last Week Tonight" segment on “pig butchering.” They explore the broader implications of this often overlooked issue, suggesting that there might be more victims entangled in this complex crime than meets the eye.
